Harrison and I slipped off to Cape Cod for a few days, and I have a few pictures I want to share from the trip. Despite my mom & aunt growing up on the Cape and my nana still living there, we discovered a small strip of land on the bay that neither my mom, aunt nor Nana had ever discovered. Wild, right?
You might not believe this, but this past weekend, Matt and I did nothing around the house. I swear. No house projects, no laundry, no cleaning. You name it. We didn't do it. Crazy, right?
We had an excuse for being a bit lackadaisical. We were away in Vermont for much of the weekend and then had a chance to celebrate Father's Day with my dad late in the day on Sunday. It was a great weekend with family and friends and I took a few pictures along the way. They're coming up.
I wanted to take a break from our guest room overhaul to write a post about our fun time away this month!
Even though the fall projects are lining themselves up, Matt and I took a semi-spontaneous trip to Texas! Does planning it a few weeks before the fly date qualify it for semi-spontaneous status? I'm a bit of a planner, so it qualifies in my book.
After my trip in February to make my sweet tablecloth, I’d been trying to get back up to the Cape to help my nana (you know - the one that sews me curtains and things) with some things around the house. We'll call it a school house road trip - where we do school house rehab-esque things for others. She mentioned needing some help in the garden as well as some odds and ends. My nana’s odds and ends: teaching her how to adjust the volume of her speaker phone and having me change a ceiling light bulb. Love her.
Matt and I were able to get away for a few days this past week. We headed out to Colorado to hang out with a bunch of family and friends for a long weekend that made for an incredible getaway! Our last 3 vacations were to Colorado. Clearly, we need to get out more. :) If you've read about our travels before, you might remember we were out in Colorado in March, as well.
This past weekend was positively beautiful here in New England. The humidity and high heat of the last couple of weeks dropped and I was able to get out of Connecticut and head up into the Green Mountains of Vermont. My sisters and I had been organizing a big girls weekend for a while and the weather forecast had everyone itching...
There were a few loose projects lined up for this weekend. I wanted to paint a couple of interior doors, do a brake job on my car, and tend to some yard maintenance. Before we tackled any of the above, we took a ride to the...
When we last left off in Colorado, Part 1, I was exhausted from hiking with psycho dog, full from all of the delicious beer and food, (mostly beer) impressed with my furniture lugging skills, and very excited for our impending trip into the mountains. Matt and I are not tremendous skiers...well...let's be honest here. By "not tremendous" I mean...
